Sideshow 12" Leia ANH - a decent figure with a number of issues that make it a mixed bag.

SOCOM 4

TAC Clone Trainee - great likeness, good figure, but standard shoulders and no ankle articulation limit it a bit.

TAC Destroyer Droid - shield is too small, he has to be hunched slightly to fit in it. Figure is indeed '99 body with '02 head, not great, and tray bends shoulders in a manner they're not designed for. Lame.

Anakin vs Assassin Droid comic 2pack - Anakin is alright, doesn't look like him or the art, and no ankle articulation is a minus. Assassin Droid is cool, good sculpting and articulation, great deco.

Went to a local toy show Saturday and bought:
2 Saga Walmart Trash Compactor sets for $10.00 a piece in really good shape. I missed them when they came out a few years back. I really like these mini dioramas.

Target today:
2 AT-RT Assault Squad Battlepacks
These are really cool looking. What's neat is that each AT-RT has a different camoflage pattern on it. These are going to look good with some of the Target Order 66 Kashyyyk troopers.

I also picked up two CDs, Moby Hotel and Smashing Pumpkins Siamese Dream. The Moby disk I had forgotten about till I heard a song off on the radio the other day. I can't tell you why I've bought the SP album before.

Thanks for the info. We have had two supercenters on hold in my town for about three years (they're even partially built), thanks to a few vocal environmentalists complaining about how the EIR was done. I still may have some luck at our "normal" WMs. They sneak some stuff (meaning supercenter stock) in just to irk the protesters.

Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End - got the 2-disc special edition though I'll probably never watch that second disc.

Carnivale: The Complete First Season - impulse buy at Sam's Club since it was only $16.58 plus tax! I thought that was a great deal for twelve hours of entertainment. I'll have to check back to see if they get the second season in for that price too.

Halo Scarab (This is a behemoth of a mini!) It's approx: 2ft long, 18in. wide and 18in. tall. I snapped some pics last night but didn't load them onto my computer. I put a quarter as well as a master Cheif mini next to it to see the scale size of this massive mini. As soon as I get them loaded I'll post a link here.

I think that's about it for now.

I pre-ordered from EE today:
TAC Wave 9 revision 3. This assortment has 2 of each figure, with no figures from previous waves. Hope I get it, as sometimes the last wave's production is cut.

Thinking about maybe ordering wave 7 and 8, as things are looking bleak around here. Almost every place is jamb-packed with Legends.

I dunno yet, but I believe a third disc is involved. I hope to find out tonight, but I imagine someone will beat me to posting it here.

How much was it at FYE? $37? I got a giftcard from them last Christmas and still haven't used it, since everything's so overpriced there.

General_Grievous
12-11-2007, 02:04 PM
Nope, it was $22. But you're right, a lot of their stuff is overpriced. But new releases there are virtually the same price as everywhere else. I bought it there because it's the only place that sells DVDs on my route to school.

Seriously though, I got my case of wvs 7 and 7.5. Pegger will be happy as he and I have had a deal going on for a couple of months now. (He's getting most of my extras from those cases)

Jawa Busts.

I saw the Cantina Galactic Heroes AND 3 3/4 Jabba's band pack sets at WM last night and passed. I thought about it for a minute then came to the conclusion that I could wait for these an if I never get them I'll be col with it.

Also passed on a grey TIE Bomber at Target. They had plenty of ARC-170 and ARC 170 battle packs. Passed on those too. Really hoping these sets will come down in price as I need another pilot and wouldn't mind just a few more of the clones to make a big squad to put in my Gunship.

LEGO Indiana Jones Motorcycle set - a little bland in the other elements though mostly faithful, but Indy and Dad are awesome times a thousand. Indy is exactly what you need/want: revolver, courier bag, hat, whip, stubble, smirk. Dad has the look too, they gave him the pith helmet but it does a good job simulating his hat, and he's got the map to the temple. The motorbikes are modern designs though, and the sidecar is thin and inaccurate, but it mostly works anyway.

Sideshow replacement Luke Bespin's pistol and saber hilt - both are PERFECTO! Unbelievable really but they're each spot-on.

TAC Concept Snowtrooper x2 - very nifty, though that head skirt pops off this guy's mug too easily when you turn his head.

TAC Concept Solo - haven't even opened this from HTS, but they sure overboxed it.

A Kind of Magic?

Dude, please tell me you have every other Queen CD except for Hot Space and Flash Gordon already. Or that you just had to have the album with "Princes of the Universe." Otherwise, that's definitely not the order to get them in. :)

I scored five half-price Christmas CD's at Target. The good stuff like Twisted Sister was, obviously, gone, but five compilations of twelve songs each for $5 almost made up for it.

Yeah, I know. My sister and I have been getting each other Queen CDs for birthdays and Christmas over the past year, and we recently had to divide the remaining ones so as not to accidentally overlap and I somehow got this one. I frankly don't have high expectations for it (just look at the cover, for Christ's sake) but Queen CDs are somewhat hard to come by in my area, unless you want the same greatest hits CD repackaged 12 different ways.

Here's what we have so far: Queen, Queen II, Sheer Heart Attack, A Night at the Opera, A Day at the Races, News of the World, A Kind of Magic, and one of the many Greatest Hits compilations. I saw The Game at Borders yesterday and will be getting that for her for her birthday, since I want that one too. :D

The Game is a great album. A Kind of Magic, though, is tracks from Highlander and Iron Eagle (many of which are good), mixed with the worst filler material imaginable.

Yesterday I received the two 64-disc storage albums (http://www.target.com/gp/detail.html/602-4927533-7221413?ASIN=B000277S74&AFID=Froogle&LNM=B000277S74|Allsop_Brown_Faux-Leather_64-CD/DVD_Album&ci_src=14110944&ci_sku=B000277S74&ref=tgt_adv_XSG10001) I ordered shortly before Christmas. I'm using them to store my Futurama Seasons 1-4 and Simpsons Seasons 1-10 DVDs. The albums don't have room for the DVD booklets, but I can keep those on the bookshelf. All those box sets are taking up too much room and are a bit unwieldy when trying to find certain episodes. Now I have all the DVDs at my fingertips in just one album.

Built the LEGO Bat-Tank, it's a really nifty set all around, even the side elements like the Riddler's jetpack are keen.

Watched Futurama: Bender's Big Score, great flick, way better than I expected, smart and fun and slick at the same time. I actually caught on to the big twist way early, so all its little touches were surprisingly heartwarming for me despite them trying to hide it. Decent bonuses, I can't believe I missed that SDCC panel, I'm still hating on life right now over that.


Hauled in recently:

Blade Runner 5-disc boxed set - haven't opened it, but a darn impressive package and I can't wait to dig into it.

12" Sideshow ANH Obi-Wan SE - damn near perfect, worst offense is he's higher price than some of these figs. But the likeness is very good, the outfit is solid, and the lightsaber is a thing of beauty.

all 3 Master Replicas flashlight Lightsabers - at $5 instead of $10, great deal!

both MR laser pointer Lightsabers - at $5 instead of $20, even better deal! Check out my news post for more info on both: http://www.sirstevesguide.com/index.php?categoryid=11&p2_articleid=1255

Pirates of the Carribean dlx Will Turner - on clearance for $5. Ok set, has an Errol Flynn quality to the figure, the pistol and sword are unusually nice (though his scabbard won't work with the sword, damnit), and the raft is alright too. The raft is kinda why I bought this, I liked the idea of the makeshift raft going with the Black Pearl.

BCJ, I've spotted the LEGO battle packs at TRU extensively the past week, and now I've seen them at Target and WM so they should be findable in the next 2 weeks for you.


I did a big run yesterday, didn't get wave 8 Jango but I did get:

TAC Rebel Vanguard - I only bought him for the Battlefront aspect, and I still don't know what level he's supposed to be from. The rocket launcher is about 20% too big, but it's cool to have it in toy form at all as I'm often this class in the game. The figure looks good in his Endor digs with ANH hat and vest. His articulation is still wonky so he has to be fiddled with and diagonal to hold the launcher.

Rubik's Cube keychain - on clearance for $1.24, I removed the keychain part, I just wanted a small cube to mess around with.

LEGO Imperial Stormtrooper 4pack - the shadow trooper thing is played out, but it's funny to see it in this $10 set. The drop ship is really small, but I do like the gimmick with the little troop platform. And 3 white stormies is yay.

LEGO Rebel Fleet Trooper speeder 4pack - I like this speeder and its removable turret. The minifigs are so serious, both the flat mouth and the angry eyebrows, it's almost too much. The helmet is funny, but does work, dunno why they bothered doing it as 2 pieces though. I think it might have been cooler if 1 of the troopers had been a captain outfit, but I'm not going to fret over that.

The Batman Plasma Wing Batman - a new figure, but accidentally on sale at WM for $3. I like the wings and the helmet, but it's more of the same light green issue. Not the worst, not the best.

The Batman Ultra BATMAN!!! - Finally after 3 unpopular waves they get around to doing regular gray & black Batman in this line. He's the same scale as DC Superheroes which is cool. The articulation is very welcome, everything DCSH has except upper-thigh and upper-arm swivels. The sculpting's a little odd at the head, but it's not terrible. The cape is designed funky around the neck, up there it's a separate plastic piece like most but instead of being flat and across the shoulders, it's sculpted like it's bunched up around his neck, then it transitions to cloth which is a little short (touches the ground, but doesn't lay on it the way the 4.5" cape does). His belt is oddly removable, not sure why. He's got 2 mega-fists, these are take-or-leave, and a pair of mega-cuffs for Bane (making them really too specific for this figure). Still, he can move his arms and legs to the side, really look like the animated action hero instead of an old SW figure.

I forgot to mention in my last hauls post:

Dr Who The Doctor (blue suit, sonic screwdriver) - TRU is actually carrying these, it's so shocking! I haven't had the nerve to open this set yet, I initially grabbed another one at the store before noticing it didn't have the sonic screwdriver, but to hell with that! Looks good though, better than the Doctor transformation 2pack version.

Dr Who Damaged Dalek Thay - it's the only Dalek figure they're currently stocking, so I bought it for that pitiful reason. Looks pretty good, but feels VERY hollow.

Found the 25th Anniversary Zartan, Stalker, and Shipwreck today. I believe that means I'm caught up except for Goldenhead Destro, the Siegie (which I might need extras of), and the Legions set, which seems to have mysteriously dried up. (I'm hoping they're just moving them to a clearance aisle to rot until they hit $5.)

Zartan looks like he's one of the better figures of the series. Stalker is pretty wicked, too, though he's a bit on the slender side. Shipwreck looks like a good sculpt, but the paint on all fifteen or so (!!!) they had sucked.

Yesterday I did the get-'em-only-'cause-they're-cheap routine, SW-style:

- Radio Shack Vader LED flashlight saber (props to whomever posted that news item here :thumbsup: )
- 2 Target SW ornaments (Vader, 4 chars)
- Vader wristwatch (not digital, it actually looks nice enough to wear as an adult :rolleyes: )
- last un-bought Hallmark SW ornament (Falcon)

Plus:
- page-a-day calendar (common English errers, um, I mean errors :p )
- saved over $100 on 3 pairs of nice pants, 4 dress shirts, the SW watch
- an Enstein sticky notes set (as a gift later)

I think I'm close to done, shopping-wise.
